With The Hunger Games: Catching Fire set to storm into theatres this Friday, the film has been making stops around the world to hold red carpet premieres. On Tuesday, it touched down in Toronto for its Canadian premiere and we were on hand to cover the event.
Taking place downtown at the Scotiabank Theatre, walking the red carpet were Jena Malone (Sucker Punch) and Sam Claflin (Snow White and the Huntsman), who play Johanna Mason and Finnick Odair in the film. For those unfamiliar with their characters, both are participants in the 75th Hunger Games, also known as the Quarter Quell, and both are former victors, meaning that they know their way around the arena quite well. During the games, protagonists Peeta and Katniss join up with Finnick and Johanna in hopes of getting out alive.
Though our time with the two stars was quite limited, we did manage to speak to them about what physical challenges their roles presented and what they found to be the hardest part about embodying these characters. You can check out what they had to say in the video below.
The Hunger Games: Catching Fire arrives in theatres tomorrow. Tell us, are you excited for the film, or were you unimpressed by its predecessor? And which character do you like better, Johanna Mason or Finnick Odair? Let us know in the comments!
